    WOT Carbon Blowout - what a change!

    I have had my 2000 STS for a little over a month now and it has been running just fine. Not that I had anything to compare it to, this is my first Cadillac. I was reading some old post about blowing out carbon buildup using the WOT method and thought I would give it a try. I figured it couldn't hurt and may improve my general performance. Last night I was on an open road and gave it a shot. I ran though a few cycles and then headed home. Today I noticed a big difference in performance. The car runs smoother and has quite a bit more power than before. It was very noticeable at once. I am hopping this also improves my gas milage. Has anyone else had such immediate major improvements? I am quite pleased with the results and will do this every few months now.

    Thanks,
    James

    Since you just bought it and don't know it's history, you might give the TB a good cleaning. That can have a bigger effect than you might think on how it runs and idles.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I think I will clean the TB tomorrow. Any other suggestions for projects I can do on my own?

    Thanks,
    James
